Dry ice is the common name for carbon dioxide in its solid state. It is called dry ice because it does not melt like wet ice. Its temperature is very low (sublimates at -78.5°C) and although it has the same appearance as ice when it evaporates it leaves no water or residue.
It is widely used as a coolant, ideal to conserve moisture sensitive products and suitable for many applications such as catering, events, food preservation, oenology, refrigerated transport, cryogenic cleaning and in the pharmaceutical industry for the preservation of vaccinations and tissues.
Our dry ice is available in a range of ready to use product forms. Depending on the required quantity, dry ice is supplied in insulated boxes or in large isothermal chests.
